“The fey, decadent milieu of the Underground, populated by dilettantes, beatnik intellectuals, and gay artistes was spiritually a million miles away from the workaday tenement neighborhoods of the Bronx — not to mention well over an hour distant by subway. This first encounter was one of mutual incomprehension. As George recalls, ‘There were all these underground people. We came in suits and we showed these 8mm movies, and I guess I was kind of a bit square-looking but the movies took off…” In an article on experimental cinema in the April 1967 issue of Playboy, authors Knight and Albert wrote, ‘The Kuchars take neither themselves nor their movies too seriously. For the most part the Underground is a dreadfully intense bunch of people.’”
Jack Stevenson, Bright Lights Film Journal
